The Honoapiilani highway is now completely open.  A portion of the road was temporarily restricted to alternating traffic earlier today in Maalaea because of a brush fire.  The fire was first reported at around 10:30 a.m., and was extinguished by around noon.  The road has since been re-opened in both directions.
